Latest technology
Officially opened in April 2013 Already known for its unique, innovative approach to astronomy, Planétarium Rio Tinto Alcan aims to stay at the forefront of its field with its latest technology upgrade. In particular, the domes of the Chaos and Milky Way theaters are now equipped with new laser projectors that offer a higher resolution and a tenfold increase in brightness. This change is akin to moving from a computer screen from the early 2000s to a newer Ultra HD screen. All the ingredients for an unforgettable experience!

This production by Spitz Creative Media for people from 7 years of age tells the story of our planet from the formation of our solar system. Scientists now believe our galaxy is filled with planetary systems, including up to a billion planets about the size of our own. The film uses advanced, data-driven, film-quality visualizations to examine some of the biggest questions facing science today: How did Earth become a living planet after our solar system was born? What does his story tell us about our chances of finding other worlds that are truly Earth-like?

The story goes on

The film will help you better understand the changes our planet has undergone in its history and the events that led to the appearance of life on earth.
